Carbon Emissions Reduced
The Bloomsbury Big Top has been working year on year on initiatives aimed at making their events more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
One of the first steps The Bloomsbury Big Top has taken is to switch change their power usage resulting in a huge drop in the use of fossil fuels. Another key initiative that The Bloomsbury Big Top has implemented is a food waste reduction program. This includes working with caterers to reduce food waste and implementing composting and recycling programs for any excess food as well as donating any food wastage to local food banks. Finally, The Bloomsbury Big Top is committed to reducing their overall environmental impact by investing in sustainable event planning practices. This includes working with event planners to minimize the use of single-use plastics, promoting the use of reusable materials.
Overall, The Bloomsbury Big Top is making significant efforts to become a more sustainable and environmentally friendly event venue. By implementing these initiatives, they hope to set an example for other event venues and encourage the wider events industry to adopt more sustainable practices.

Reducing our Footprint
We are incredibly proud to announce our investment in a new £250,000 electrical sub-station installed in Corams Fields in 2021 to reduce our carbon emissions by 95%
We use recyclable materials where we can throughout our venue – one example being recycling our carpets for conversion into toothbrushes, hairbrushes an other plastic and recyclable products.
Hunger to Change
Over the past few years following Government announcements attendances have somewhat decreased. Turning a negative into a positive, this provided us the opportunity to donate the unused food to various charities and food banks such as “Crisis at Christmas”
The Bloomsbury Big Top hosts a range of different event types from shared and exclusive Christmas parties to conferences and award dinners with our all in one event solution we’ve got you covered.
